Why should we opt to use Ghee? Here are some of the benefits listed by a nutrition Coach @anauafranco


Ghee is a type of clarified butter. It has water and milk solids removed. For this reason, ghee is free of the milk sugar lactose and the milk protein casein.


Ghee can handle high temperatures because it has a high smoke point, which is the temperature at which fats become volatile and begins to smoke.


Ghee has important nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin E, conjugated linoleic acid, and butyric acid. It may help digestion and reduce inflammation.
